At Target, we see incredible power in a single three-letter word: and. We talk about the power of and and the value created when we make space for each other--diversity and inclusion. As Tony draws on his personal history and decades-long career advising the leadership of some of the world's largest companies, he rightly concludes that diversity alone is simply not enough given the ever-evolving demographic shifts taking place in today's environment. Inclusivity must be an equal component of an organization's culture.

I was fascinated to read about Tony's own early life journey which illuminates why leveraging diversity and inclusion are such a lifelong passion for him. He expresses the business benefits of leveraging diversity through inclusion better than I have ever seen before. Tony differentiates between simply having diversity and what it takes to create a culture of inclusion in order to reap the benefits. The book provides a model for success and sets the bar high for everyone. I recommend his insightful book for every business leader. —Michael Welp, Ph.D. Co-Founder, White Men as Full Diversity Partners. Author, Four Days To Change

In The Multiplier Effect of Inclusion, we are reminded that when effectively practiced, the work of [diversity and inclusion] presents organizations with an opportunity to grow, innovate, and create value for shareholders. I have found when the subject becomes too much about the politics of D&I, rather than the well-researched and undeniable truth that it is good for business, its importance as a creator of value for organizations and society gets lost in translation. Tony brings us back to the immutable truth that D&I creates value, and the work specifically on Inclusion, multiplies our efforts across organizations.
